Are contributions to Reformation Academy tax deductible?

We have completed our non-profit corporation requirements and submitted our form 1023 to the IRS for 501(c)(3) status. We have not heard back from the IRS officially yet but our legal counsel assures us that we may now operate as a fully tax deductible 501(c)(3) charity as the application approval is applied retroactively. Please consult your tax or accounting professional first if deductibility is critical.
